Tensions in the workplace are common. For most of us it's a daily reality that the people we work with are not necessarily the same people we'd choose as friends.

Hollywood film sets are no exception. In fact, one could argue that as hotbeds of creative energy, film sets are the perfect environment for professional disagreement.

Diane Kruger opened up during the January 11 episode of the 'Reign With Josh Smith' podcast about her experience landing the role of Bridget von Hammersmark in Quentin Tarantino's 2009 film 'Inglourious Basterds,' which was ultimately well-received but started out terribly rocky. 

She and Josh Smith were discussing their biggest "f—k you moments" in their lives when Kruger told the story of how Tarantino initially didn't want to cast her. "He auditioned everyone. He didn't want to audition me because he saw a movie that I was in that he didn't like," she explained. "So he didn't believe in me from the get-go. Literally, the only reason he auditioned me is because there was no one left to audition."

She added that Tarantino "wouldn't see me in the US" and so she had to pay her own way to Germany just to audition. "So, I had to jump through all these hoops that definitely put my nose out of joint, but I was like, ‘You know what, f—k him. I'm just gonna do that and prove him that I could do it.'" She continued, "Thankfully, it all worked out but sometimes it just seems so unfair, and you've got to change the narrative."
